By Edmond Rostand
An NCPA-National Theatre Live (London) Presentation
In a new version by Martin Crimp, directed by Jamie Lloyd, charismatic swordsman and brilliant poet, Cyrano de Bergerac is in love with his beautiful cousin Roxane, who is unaware of his feelings. His one curse in life, he feels, is his large nose and although it may have been a forming influence in his razor-sharp wit, he believes that Roxane will reject him. When the handsome but unpoetic Christian falls for Roxane, he asks Cyrano to help him win her heart. Cyrano de Bergerac can be delivered as an allegory of inner and outer beauty.
